Sara Carolina's Baptism

Here is another baptism cake for a baby girl. This was done for another friend from elementary and high school. Her daughter is just absolutely adorable and she came to me to do her daughter's baptism cake. We came across an idea to do a 2 tiered caked in form of a dress. The bottom has a little lace trim around the top border on the sides. Towards the front has several pearl nonpareils (decorative confection of tiny balls made with sugar and starch) and a flower. The bottom of the cake has an opening in the front with the inner layer in pink and the skirt is ruffled all around with the lace trim. As for the very top of the cake, the mother put a Precious Moment cake topper which added that special touch.

Ari's Baptism

Here is a cake I did for a friend of mine. It was her son's baptism and she used all white theme. As for the cake, she came across an idea to keep the cake very simple and white. She wanted the chocolate with a mocha chip filling covered in light buttercream with coconut flakes. I used a mirror cake plate instead of a cakeboard and it made it look more elegant.

She also wanted something special for the kiddies. The cupcakes were lambs for the Lamb of God and 1 of cupcakes was a lion for Ari, her son, which his name means Lion. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results. Thanks for looking.

Isabella's 1st Birthday Elmo Style

Here is a cake I did for a friend who's daughter turned 1. She loves Elmo but I had to think how could I make it girly? I used a round cake board covered in red fondant with the bottom cake in a square shape covered in a light lime green fondant with red and white polka dots. The top I decided to make it round covered in white fondant and add accents of yellow and aqua. As for Elmo, I made as if he was coming out the cake. Overall, I think I made the cake perfect for a little girl's 1st birthday Elmo style. Thanks for looking!!!

UCF Graduation Cake

WOW! This is the first time I post a picture of a cake in a long time. I'm going to have to start backwards to go forward. :) Well, here is a cake that I did for a really good friend's cousin. She just graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL. I'm very familiar with this school. I use to travel alot in FL when I taught cheerleading camps held at different universities . UCF happened to be one that I visited quite often. It's a great school and the campus is beautiful. As for the cake, my friend said to make it black and gold. I decided to cover the cake in black vanilla fondant. I then made a template of the UCF Pegasus. I tinted white fondant yellow and then it cut it out using my template. I mixed a little bit of gold edible dust with vanilla extract. I basically painted the pegasus with the gold mixture and let it dry. I placed it on the cake and used a little VE (vanilla extract) to make sure it stuck to the cake. As for the sides and border, I just cut out little square/diamonds and the border was rolled black fondant balls with several alternating gold balls. I also rolled fondant into a diploma and put a black ribbon on top. The cake flavor is my signature: vanilla with dulce de leche filling. Yummy! Hope you enjoyed it.
